My research focuses on the mechanisms through which parenting behaviors shape the development of children’s self-regulation. I am also interested in how parents self-regulate in stressful situations and manage to provide support to their children.
I hope my research helps raise awareness of the need to support children and families that face various of stressors in their daily life, and I hope to contribute to the work of promoting emotionally supportive parenting and preventing child abuse or neglect.
